my GR-1 is on its way to me, and I wanted to get a handheld recorder that can double as a line input for the device. The only devices like that listed in the manual are the Zoom H6 (with a note that the lower numbered Zooms are not compatible due to clicks or dropouts.) Unfortunately, the H6 is a bit pricier than I'd like to spend.
The unit that looks ideal is the Tascam DR-40X. At $180 it is close to half the price of the Zoom H6, but it still takes 1/4" jacks for line inputs, and of course has stereo microphones for ambient sound. Has anyone tried the Tascam? Any other handheld devices tried and worked?
